Our com­pe­ti­tion win­ner on the Dark Mat­ter set

Back in March we teamed up with Syfy for a very ex­cit­ing com­pe­ti­tion: the chance to visit the set of Dark Mat­ter sea­son two. The lucky win­ner, Andy Ether­ton has now re­turned from outer space (sorry, Toronto in Canada), and says he en­joyed his ad­ven­ture on the fi­nal fron­tier. “By far the best thing of the trip, by a long mar­gin, was just how friendly ev­ery­one was,” he tells SFX.

“Every­body was kind, pa­tient, hu­mor­ous and gen­uinely in­ter­ested in The Bri­tish Guy. It re­ally made me want to move to Canada im­me­di­ately and I felt quite emo­tional hav­ing to say good­bye to all the lovely peo­ple I met.”

It was also some­thing of a learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. “With­out a doubt my big­gest sur­prise was how long the day’s shoot­ing was and how lit­tle would end up be­ing used,” says Andy. “I was col­lected at 06.30 from my ho­tel and walked back in at 23.30 that night! I was told that from all of that work the team would ex­pect to use around seven min­utes in the ac­tual episode. I’ll cer­tainly be watch­ing the episode I par­tic­i­pated in with a lot more in­ter­est and, pos­si­bly, a more crit­i­cal eye.”
